Footwear sole construction 20 is fixed to vamp 30 and when wearing footwear 10, footwear sole construction 20 extends between foot and ground.The main element of footwear sole construction 20 is midsole 21, footwear outer bottom 22 and shoe-pad 23.Midsole 21 be fixed to vamp 30 lower surface and can by compressible polymer foam element (such as, polyurethane or ethylvinylacetate foam) formed, during walking, running or other ambulatory activitieses, when being squeezed between foot and ground, compressible polymer foam element decay ground reaction force (that is, providing buffering).In other configuration, midsole 21 can in conjunction with fluid-filled chamber, plate, buffer or further damping force, strengthen stability or affect other elements of foot movement, or midsole 21 can be formed primarily of fluid-filled chamber.Footwear outer bottom 22 is fixed to the lower surface of midsole 21 and can be formed with the abrasive rubber material giving attachment frictional force by by veining.Shoe-pad 23 is positioned at vamp 30 and is positioned at the bottom surface downward-extension of foot.Although the example that this configuration provides the footwear sole construction that can use in conjunction with vamp 30 of footwear sole construction 20, also can use other routines various of footwear sole construction 20 or unconventional configuration.Therefore, the footwear sole construction 20 used together with vamp 30 or the structure of any footwear sole construction and feature can significantly change.

The various piece of vamp 30 can by be sewn or be combined together to form in footwear 10 for receive relative to footwear sole construction 20 and fix in the multiple material element (such as, fabric, polymer sheet, froth bed, leather, synthetic leather) of the cavity of foot one or more formed.Cavity is shaped as and holds foot the lateral surface along foot, the medial surface along foot, extends above foot, around heel and below foot.The entrance entering cavity is provided by the ankle opening 31 being arranged at least heel region 13.Shoestring 32 extends through multiple lace hole 33 and allows wearer to change the size of vamp 30 to adapt to the ratio of foot.More specifically, shoestring 32 allows wearer tightly to be tied up to around foot by vamp 30, and shoestring 32 also allows wearer to unclamp vamp 30 so that foot enters from cavity and leaves (that is, by ankle opening 31).As the substitute of lace hole 33, vamp 30 can comprise other shoestring receiving elements, such as ring, eyelet and D type ring.In addition, vamp 30 is included the flap 34 that extends between cavities and shoestring 32 to strengthen the comfortableness of footwear 10.In some configurations, vamp 30 can in conjunction with the heel counter of the heel motion in restriction heel region 13 or the wear-resisting toe protector being positioned at footwear front area 11.

With reference to Fig. 1 and 2, such as, lacing regions 16 and lower area 17 are roughly defined.Lacing regions 16 comprises lace hole 33 or other regions residing for shoestring receiving element substantially, and lower area 17 comprises the region that vamp 30 is connected with footwear sole construction 20 substantially.The region of the footwear 10 comprising vamp 30 is not intended to accurately divide in region 16 and 17.But region 16 and 17 is intended to represent that region is roughly to contribute to discussion below.

Line configuration

Although multiple material element or miscellaneous part can be incorporated in vamp 30, one or two the region in lateral surface 14 and medial surface 15 combines many First Lines 41 from from multiple lace hole 33 to downward-extension and the second line 42.More specifically, line 41 and 42 extends to lower area 17 from lacing regions 16.Although the number of line 41 and 42 can marked change, Fig. 1 and 2 depicts from each lace hole 33 downwards and two First Lines 41 extended towards footwear sole construction 20 and two second lines 42.Be oriented at the direction of general vertical in the region of First Line 41 between lace hole 33 and footwear sole construction 20, and be oriented at sweptback direction in the second region of line 42 between lace hole 33 and footwear sole construction 20.As discussed in more detail below, these orientations of line 41 and 42 contribute to break-in campaign (cutting motion) (that is, the lateral movement of wearer) and braking motion (that is, the forward momentum of the wearer that slows down).

When being incorporated in vamp 30, line 41 and 42 can between basalis 43 and cover layer 44, as depicted in fig. 3.Basalis 43 defines the surface of the cavity in vamp 30, and cover layer 44 defines the outer surface of vamp 30 or a part for exposed surface.Therefore, the combination of First Line 41, second line 42, basalis 43 and cover layer 44 substantially can form the gross thickness of vamp 30 in some regions.Although layer 43 and 44 can be connected to each other in some positions, be not usually fixed to each other in layer 43 and 44 online 41 and the region residing for 42 (e.g., between region 16 and 17).In addition, line 41 and 42 can not be fixed to layer 43 and 44 in some regions (e.g., between region 16 and 17).In this configuration, line 41 and 42 is loosely between layer 43 and 44.Its center line 41 and 42 is that the advantage of lax configuration is that each root in line 41 and 42 can with independently mode tensioning substantially, bending, mobile or otherwise operate in footwear 10 between layer 43 and 44.

Relate to walking, run or other walking movements (such as, break-in, braking) active stage between, the foot in the cavity of footwear 10 can trend towards stretching vamp 30.That is, when the motion due to foot is in stretching, the many material elements forming vamp 30 can stretch.Although line 41 and 42 also can stretch, line 41 and 42 is stretched to less degree than the other materials element (such as, basalis 43 and cover layer 44) forming vamp 30 usually.Therefore, every root line 41 and 42 can be set to form the structure member in vamp 30, such that (a) resists the stretching of specific direction or position, (b) limit foot and guarantee relative to the overexercise of footwear sole construction 20 and vamp 30, (c) position that foot keeps suitable location and (d) to strengthen power concentrating relative to footwear sole construction 20 and vamp 30.

First Line 41 (that is, between region 16 and 17) between lace hole 33 and footwear sole construction 20 extends the stretching to resist on medial-lateral direction (that is, on the direction extended around vamp 30).With reference to Fig. 1 and 2, in the region of First Line 41 between lace hole 33 and footwear sole construction 20, be oriented at the direction of general vertical.Although can expand in the side 14 and 15 of vamp 30, projection or otherwise stretch out to form slight curving surface, First Line 41 have general vertical orientation and along short path relative between lace hole 33 with footwear sole construction 20.When carrying out break-in campaign (that is, the lateral movement of wearer), First Line 41 resists the transverse movement of foot to guarantee that foot keeps suitable location relative to footwear 10.That is, First Line 41 resists the stretching in vamp 30, otherwise this stretching may allow foot to depart from footwear sole construction 20.Therefore, First Line 41 is resisted the kinetic stretching of vamp 30 internal cause break-in and is guaranteed that foot keeps suitable location relative to footwear 10.

Second region of line 42 between lace hole 33 and footwear sole construction 20 is positioned in sweptback direction in (that is, between region 16 and 17).When carrying out braking motion (that is, the forward momentum of the wearer that slows down), the stretching in vamp 30 resisted by the second line 42, and this stretching may allow foot forward slip or be separated with footwear sole construction 20.The stretching that the warpage in the region of vamp 30 internal cause footwear 10 between footwear front area 11 and footwear central region 12 causes also resisted by second line 42.With reference to figure 4, depict in the footwear 10 of flexed configuration such as occurred when wearer jumps or run.When warpage by this way or bending time, the heel area of foot may often be separated with footwear sole construction 20 or otherwise the region that footwear sole construction 20 is fixed to vamp 30 is left in lifting.But the sweptback orientation of the second line 41 ensure that the heel area of foot keeps suitably and is positioned in vamp 30 relative to footwear sole construction 20.Therefore, the second line 42 resists vamp 30 internal cause braking motion and warpage or the otherwise stretching that causes of the jump of bending footwear 10 and road-work.

In region between lace hole 33 and footwear sole construction 20, First Line 41 is oriented at the direction of general vertical and the second line 41 is oriented at sweptback direction.About First Line 41, the low portion of the upper part of First Line 41 (that is, being close to the part that lace hole 33 is located) and First Line 41 (that is, adjacent sole structure 20 locate part) general alignment.In this configuration, the upper part of First Line 41 is oriented to be similar to identical from the low portion of distance and the First Line 41 of the front portion of footwear 10 from the distance of the front portion of footwear 10.In this configuration, and most of First Line 41 is positioned at footwear central region 12 completely.Although First Line 41 can have vertical orientation, the angle of First Line 41 can also have in the orientation departing from the general vertical between vertical 0 degree to 15 degree.As used here, term " orientation of general vertical " and its similar version are defined as wherein from viewed from the side of footwear 10 time (as Fig. 1 and 2), and First Line 41 is oriented at the orientation departed between vertical 0 degree to 15 degree.

Upper part (that is, being close to the part that lace hole 33 is located) about the second line 42, second line 42 departs from the low portion (that is, the part of adjacent sole structure 20 location) of the second line 42.In this configuration, the upper part of the second line 42 is oriented to low portion than First Line 41 closer to the front portion of footwear 10.In this configuration, and most of second line 42 extends to heel region 13 from footwear central region 12.Although the orientation of the second line 42 can change, the angle of the second line 42 can from depart from vertical 20 degree to more than 70 degree.

Consider orientation and the angle of above-mentioned line 41 and 42, the scope of the angle formed between line 41 and 42 can as from 20 degree to more than 60 degree.First Line 41 contributes to break-in campaign, and the second line 42 contributes to braking motion.In order to make line 41 and 42 contribute to these different motions, line 41 and the angle formed between 42 can be enough large to resist or otherwise to resist the stretching in moving with these vamp 20 relevant.Although the scope of the angle formed between line 41 and 42 can from 20 degree to more than 60 degree, in order to effectively contribute to break-in campaign and braking motion, the angle formed between line 41 and 42 will be greater than 40 degree usually.

As discussed in further detail below, suitable material for line 41 and 42 comprises the various silks, fiber, yarn, fine rule, cable or the rope that are formed by artificial silk, nylon, polyester, polypropylene, silk, cotton, carbon, glass, aromatic polyamides (such as, to aramid fibre and an aramid fibre), ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene, liquid crystal polymer, copper, aluminium or steel.Although line 41 and 42 can be formed by similar material, the second line 42 can be formed to have the tensile strength being greater than First Line 41.Give an example, line 41 can be formed by identical material with 42, but the thickness of the second line 42 can be greater than the thickness of First Line 41 to give larger tensile strength.For another example, line 41 and 42 can be formed by different materials, and the tensile strength forming the material of the second line 42 is greater than the tensile strength of the material forming First Line 41.This difference between line 41 and 42 be usually greater than according to the power caused in vamp 30 during being braking motion the power caused in vamp 30 between break-in moving period.In order to tackle the difference of the power of braking and break-in generation, line 41 and 42 can present different tensile strength.

Various factors can the relative tensile strength of effect string 41 and 42, comprises the size of footwear 10, the motor activity that footwear 10 are designed to and the degree that layer 43 and 44 stretches.In addition, the tensile strength of line 41 and 42 can depend in (a) footwear 10 or the region memory of footwear 10 the particular location of group of the number of line 41 and 42, (b) solid wire 41 and 42 or line 41 and 42 and (c) form the material of line 41 and 42.Although be variable, the tensile strength of the second line 42 can larger than the tensile strength of First Line 41 50% to the scope more than 300%.In order to obtain tensile strength different between line 41 and 42, such as, different materials or material thickness may be used for line 41 and 42.As the example of suitable material, First Line 41 can be formed by the Bandaid nylon (bonded nylon) 6.6 of the breaking strength or tensile strength and 45 spies (that is, the weight of every km material 45 grams) weight with 3.1 kilograms and the second line 42 can be formed by the Bandaid nylon 6.6 of the breaking strength or tensile strength and 45 spies with 6.2 kilograms.In this configuration, the tensile strength larger than the tensile strength of First Line 41 100% of the second line 42.

Tensile strand elements

The tensile strand elements 40 that can be incorporated in vamp 30 is depicted in Fig. 5.In addition, the every secondary figure in Fig. 6-8B depicts a part for element 40.Such as, element 40 can form the major part of lateral surface 14.Therefore, element 40 has following configuration: (a) extends to lower area from the top of lateral surface 14 and each through the 11-13 of region, b () defines the multiple lace holes 33 in lateral surface 14, and (namely (c) both formed inner surface, when wearing footwear 10, the surface of socks that contact foot or foot are worn) formed again outer surface (that is, footwear 10 outside, the surface that exposes).Substantially similar element also may be used for medial surface 15.In some configurations of footwear 10, element 40 only can extend through a part (such as, being restricted to footwear central region 12) for lateral surface 14 or can be expanded to be formed the major part of lateral surface 14 and medial surface 15.That is, the general configuration with element 40 and the single element comprising line 41 and 42 and layer 43 and layer 44 can extend through both lateral surface 14 and medial surface 15.In other configurations, extra element can be connected to element 40 with forming section lateral surface 14.

Basalis 43 and cover layer 44 located adjacent one another, and line 41 and 42 is loosely positioned between layer 43 and layer 44.The surface of line 41 and 42 adjacent layer 43 and 44 and with the surperficial general parallel orientation of layer 43 and 44 arrange.Just as discussed above, line 41 and 42 defines the structure member that in vamp 30, opposing stretches.Due to the surperficial general parallel orientation with basalis 43 and cover layer 44, therefore the stretching on the direction on the surface corresponding to layer 43 and layer 44 resisted by line 41 and 42.Although line 41 and 42 can extend through basalis 43 (such as, owing to sewing up) in some positions, can allow to stretch in online 41 and 42 regions extending through basalis 43, reduce line 41 and 42 accordingly and limit the whole capability stretched.Therefore, the surface of the usual adjacent layer 43 and 44 of every root line 41 and 42 and be in substantially parallel relationship to this surface the distance reaching at least 12 millimeters is set, and can in this surface contiguous setting in the distance of 5 centimetres or more.

Basalis 43 and cover layer 44 are depicted as and jointly extend each other.That is, layer 43 and layer 44 can have identical shape and size, so that the edge of basalis 43 is corresponding with the edge of cover layer 44 and concordant.In some manufacture processes, a () line 41 and 42 is positioned on basalis 43, b () cover layer 44 is placed on basalis 43 and line 41 and 42, and (c) from then on combines cutting element 40 to have the shape and size of expectation, form the common first edges of basalis 43 and cover layer 44 accordingly.In this process, the end of line 41 and 42 also can extend to the edge of layer 43 and layer 44.Therefore, the edge of layer 43 and layer 44 and the end of line 41 and 42 can be positioned in the edge of element 40.

As mentioned above, layer 43 and 44 can be connected to each other in some positions, and is not usually fixed to each other in layer 43 and 44 online 41 and the region residing for 42 (e.g., between region 16 and 17).With reference to figure 5, such as, the edge of layer 43 and 44 can be fixed to each other near the periphery of element 40, is included in lacing regions 16 and lower area 17.Inwardly and in the region of spaced from edges, comprise the region between lacing regions 16 and lower area 17, layer 43 and 44 can not be fixed to each other.In addition, line 41 and 42 can be fixed in layer 43 and 44 in region 16 and 17 one or two, but be not fixed to layer 43 and 44 in region between region 16 and 17.That is, in the region of line 41 and 42 between region 16 and 17 loosely between layer 43 and 44.As mentioned above, the advantage of the configuration of its center line 41 and 42 loosely between layer 43 and 44 is that every single line 41 and 42 can with substantially independently mode tensioning, bending, mobile or otherwise operate in footwear 10.

Although line 41 and 42 can be fixed to part layer 43 and 44 (e.g., in any one in region 16 and 17), be not fixed in the distance of at least 5 centimetres in the region of line 41 and 42 between lacing regions 16 and lower area 17.By being loosely positioned at the mode forming element 40 reaching the distance of at least 5 centimetres between layer 43 and 44 with line 41 and 42, line 41 and 42 can have enough frees degree with in footwear 10 with substantially independently mode tensioning, bending, mobile or otherwise operate.In region between region 16 and 17, layer 43 and 44 is not fixed to each other yet.In order to give line 41 and 42 free degree further, layer 43 and 44 can not be fixed to each other being measured as at least 5 centimetres of regions of being multiplied by 5 centimetres.That is, layer 43 and 44 can be formed and be measured as the loose region that at least 5 centimetres are multiplied by 5 centimetres, and line 41 and 42 is not fixed to layer 43 and 44 in this loose region.The advantage of this configuration is that many lines 41 and 42 can loose region between across-layer 43 and 44.

Each in basalis 43 and cover layer 44 can be formed by any two-dimensional material substantially.As used about the present invention, term " two-dimensional material " or its version are intended to comprise substantially the flat material demonstrating length and width and be obviously greater than thickness.Therefore, such as, the combination of various fabric, polymer sheet or fabric and polymer sheet is comprised for the suitable material of basalis 43 and cover layer 44.Fabric is substantially by fiber, silk or yarn manufacture, such as, fiber, silk or yarn (a) by combining, fusion or interlocking build non-woven fabric and felt and directly produced by fleece, or (b) by mechanical manipulation of yam to produce braiding or knit goods formation.Such as, fabric can in conjunction with being arranged to the fiber giving simple tension or multi tension, and fabric can comprise and forms the ventilative and coating of the barrier of waterproof.Polymer sheet can be extruded by polymeric material, roll and grind or otherwise formed to represent substantially flat face.Two-dimensional material can also comprise laminated material or other stratified materials, and these materials comprise two-layer or multiply cloth, polymer sheet or fabric and polymer sheet combination.Except fabric and polymer sheet, other two-dimensional material can be used to layer 43 and 44.Such as, although two-dimensional material can have level and smooth or substantially without the surface of texture, some two-dimensional material still shows texture or other surfaces characteristic, as nick, projection, rib or various pattern.Although there is surface characteristic, two-dimensional material keeps flat substantially and shows large length more obvious than thickness and width.In some configurations, Web materials or perforated material can be used in layer 43 and layer 44 or both are to give stronger gas permeability or air permeability.

First Line 41 and the second line 42 can be formed by any one-dimensional material substantially.As about used in the present invention, term " one-dimensional material " or the expection of its version comprise the elongated material demonstrating length and be obviously greater than width and thickness substantially.Therefore, suitable material for line 41 and 42 comprises the various silks, fiber, yarn, fine rule, cable or the rope that are formed by artificial silk, nylon, polyester, polypropylene, silk, cotton, carbon, glass, aromatic polyamides (such as, to aramid fibre and an aramid fibre), ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene, liquid crystal polymer, copper, aluminium and steel.Silk has uncertain length and can be used alone as line 41 and 42, and fiber has relatively short length and generally produce the line with appropriate length by spinning or twisting process.Individual thread for line 41 and 42 can be formed (such as, one pack system silk) or be formed (such as, bi-component silk) by multiple material by homogenous material.Similarly, different silks can be formed by different materials.Give an example, the yarn as line 41 and 42 can comprise the silk that every root is all formed by common used material, maybe can comprise the silk that every root is all formed by two or more different materials.Similar concept is also applicable to fine rule, cable or rope.The thickness of line 41 and 42 also can significantly change, such as, from being less than 0.03 millimeter to the scope being greater than 5 millimeters.Although one-dimensional material often has the width cross section (such as, circular or square cross section) substantially equal with thickness, some one-dimensional material can have the width (such as, rectangle, ellipse or other elongated cross section) larger than thickness.Although have larger width, if the length of material is obviously greater than width and the thickness of material, so can think that this material is one dimension.As examples cited above, First Line 41 can be formed by the Bandaid nylon 6.6 of the breaking strength or tensile strength and 45 extra heavy amounts with 3.1 kilograms and the second line 42 can be formed by the Bandaid nylon 6.6 of the breaking strength or tensile strength and 45 spies with 6.2 kilograms.

Give an example, basalis 43 can be formed by textile material, and cover layer 44 can be formed by the polymer sheet being attached to textile material, or each in layer 43 and layer 44 can be formed by the polymer sheet be bonded to each other.When basalis 43 is formed by textile material, cover layer 44 can in conjunction with the thermoplastic, polymeric materials be combined with the textile material of basalis 43.That is, by adding thermal blanket 44, the thermoplastic, polymeric materials of cover layer 44 can be combined with the textile material of basalis 43.Alternatively, thermoplastic, polymeric materials can infiltrate the textile material of basalis 43 or be combined with the textile material of basalis 43, to be combined with cover layer 44.That is, basalis 43 can be the combination of textile material and thermoplastic, polymeric materials.The advantage of this configuration is that thermoplastic, polymeric materials can at the textile material of the manufacture process of element 40 (comprising part manufacture process line 41 and 42 is placed on basalis 43) period sclerosis or otherwise stabilized baseplate layer 43.Another advantage of this configuration is that back sheet (back sheet 48 see in Figure 10 D) can use thermoplastic, polymeric materials to be relatively attached to basalis 43 with cover layer 44 in some configurations.This conventional conception is openly to submit to United States Patent and Trademark Office on July 25th, 2008 and exercise question is the U.S. Patent application the 12/180th of Composite Element With A Polymer Connecting Layer (having the composite component of polymer articulamentum), in No. 235, this existing application is incorporated to by reference of text at this.

Based on above-mentioned discussion, element 40 comprises two layers 43 and layer 44 haply and line 41 and 42 is loosely therebetween.Although line 41 and 42 can be fixed to one of layer 43 and layer 44, the line 41 and 42 substantially surface of adjacent layer 43 and layer 44 surface being in substantially parallel relationship to layer 43 and layer 44 arranges and reaches and be greater than 12 millimeters and be even greater than 5 millimeters.Multiple one-dimensional material may be used for line 41 and 42, and one or more two-dimensional material may be used for layer 43 and layer 44.

Further footwear configuration

The orientation of line 41 and 42 in fig. 1 and 2, position and quantity aim to provide the example of the suitable configuration of footwear 10.In other configurations of footwear 10, many lines 41 and 42 can be non-existent, or extra line 41 and 42 can be exist to provide the further structure member in footwear 10.In fig. 1 and 2, two First Lines 41 are relevant to each lace hole 33 with two second lines 42.With reference to figure 9A, single break-in line (cutting strand) and brake line stretch out from each lace hole 33.Fig. 9 B depicts the configuration that wherein three First Lines 41 are relevant to each lace hole 33 with the second line 42.Although the line 41 and 42 of identical number can be relevant to each lace hole 33, Fig. 9 C depicts the configuration that wherein two First Lines 41 and a brake line extend from each lace hole 33.In addition, the number of line 41 and 42 can change in multiple lace hole 33, describe, or some lace holes 33 can not be associated with line 41 and 42, describe as Fig. 9 E as Fig. 9 D.Therefore, the number of line 41 and 42 can marked change.

In multiple configuration as discussed above, line 41 and 42 extends from lace hole 33.Although line 41 and 42 can contact lace hole 33 or with lace hole 33 in close relation, line 41 and 42 can also extend from the region of contiguous lace hole 33.With reference to figure 9F, such as, the upper part of line 41 and 42 is between lace hole 33 or be positioned at the side of lace hole 33.Although line 41 and 42 is provided for the suitable system of footwear 10 jointly, extra line also may reside in footwear 10.Such as, Fig. 9 G depicts many vertical lines 45 and extends between footwear front area 11 and heel region 13.In above-mentioned different configuration, First Line 41 is essentially parallel to each other and the second line 42 is essentially parallel to each other.But with reference to figure 9H, First Line 41 is relative to each other angled and the second line 42 is relative to each other angled.Although line 41 and 42 can be linear substantially, it is corrugated or other nonlinear configurations that Fig. 9 I depicts wherein partial line 41 and 42.As discussed above, line 41 and 42 can resist the stretching in vamp 30, but the nonlinear area of line 41 and 42 can allow some stretching in vamp 30.But because line 41 and 42 is straightened due to stretching, so line 41 and 42 can resist the stretching in vamp 30.

Footwear 10 are disclosed as the general configuration having and be suitable for walking or running.The conception relevant to footwear 10 also goes for other athletic footwear type multiple.Such as, footwear 10 are depicted as the configuration with basketball shoes by Fig. 9 J.

The example of the suitable configuration of footwear 10 is aimed to provide to the line 41 and 42 in Fig. 3 and layer 43 various aspects relevant with layer 44.In other configurations of footwear 10, the extra layer relevant with layer 44 to layer 43 or the position of line 41 and 42 can change.With reference to figure 10A, cover layer 44 is non-existent, so that at least line 42 is exposed to the outside of vamp 30.With reference to figure 10B, be fixed to each other between layer 43 and layer 44 online 42.In another kind of configuration, describe in fig 1 oc, extra layer 46 and layer 47 are set to form the interior section adjacent with cavity of vamp 30.Although layer 46 and layer 47 can be formed by multiple material, layer 46 can be strengthen the polymer foam layer of overall comfort of footwear 10 and layer 47 can be the moisture-wicking textile of discharging sweat or other moistures from the region of next-door neighbour's foot.With reference to figure 10D, one group of extra line 42 is arranged on the opposite side of basalis 43, and back sheet 48 extends throughout this one group of extra line 42.When (embroidery) process of embroidery is used to position line 41 and 42 time, this configuration can occur.

Figure 11 depicts the tension component 50 that may be used for alternative line 41 and 42.Tension component 50 is formed by the polymeric member that two connect.A polymeric member forms many First Lines 51, and another polymeric member forms many second lines 52.In addition, polymeric member is connected to form multiple lace hole 33.Therefore, the structure except line 41 and 42 may be used for contributing to break-in campaign and braking motion.

The jog mode of individual or preference also can determine the orientation of line 41 and 42, position and quantity.Such as, some can have the inward turning (that is, foot inwardly rolls) of relative high degree, and the line 41 and 42 so with different configuration can reduce the degree of inward turning.Some also may during break-in and braking the larger enhanced stretch resistance of preference, so footwear 10 can be modified and comprise other line 41 and 42 or the line 41 and 42 of different orientation on side 14 and 15.Some also may fit by preference vamp 30 more closely, and this may need to increase more line 41 and 42 in whole vamp 30.Therefore, by changing the orientation of line 41 and 42, position and quantity, footwear 10 can be made to be applicable to jog mode or the preference of individual.
